Oh how heavy the load we carry,
"If only I had just opened my heart
When Dad was alive and made up!",
"Why did I have to put money before integrity?",
"Why was it so important to always be seen to be correct?",
"If only I had just followed my heart's desire and not copped out!",
...and the list goes on and on of guilt and regret.
Our hearts and minds are so weighed down with baggage from the Past of 'could have beens,' 'should have beens' and 'Didn't work outs' and from them, the destruction of our Inner acceptance of receiving anything more than mediocrity, that We live lives of agonizing frustration searching for answers that Cannot possibly be found where they are searched for.
